Every year, the Lawn & Landscape team surveys hundreds of readers to create our Benchmarking Your Business Report, where we bring you industry standards for equipment expenditures, rates of pay and budgets.

The most recent report was in the November 2016 issue, but you can now see in real time how you stack up against your competition regionally and nationally on our website.

Head over to our website at bit.ly/Benchmarkreal to enter your numbers and see where you stand.

L&L, Corona Tools, Jain Irrigation and Ewing Irrigation met up to live tweet the Irrigation Show in Las Vegas last month. We even headed to Facebook Live to bring you the latest news from the show floor. Special guest Conrad Weaver, director of the documentary Thirsty Land, stopped by to chat about his new film and we got the lowdown.
